Wednesday, September 28, 2022, 7:30 PM Philadelphia Ethical Society 1906 Rittenhouse Square Sundaram Tagore says of his film, that upon a visit to Bangladesh, “I visited Kahn’s famous parliamentary complex Sher-e-Bangla Nagor, also known as the Tiger City. The complex was the beating heart of the newly formed democratic nation. I was unprepared for the raw emotional power and poetic beauty of these buildings. Tiger City looked futuristic and ancient at the same time.” The film is a superb document bringing to life for the audience that “emotional power and poetic beauty” of Kahn’s architecture.
